Thank you so much!!! I love this community you guys are the bestKeep us posted! It will happen. I'm not sure they are quite a week old, but no matter. If she's willing, they'll fall in love with her soon enough. They just don't know it yet.
Did it all go ok over night? Are the chicks 'getting it'?After sitting on the chicks for the most part of the day, sunset is almost here and I needed to move her out of the main coop and into the isolated pen, so everyone else could go to bed. (nervous about my isa brown x who is a known chick murderer).
I put the chicks in a box and nudged Goldie on top of them but again, she wanted to set up on the ground and they wouldn't come to her. I tipped them gently out of the box and after a painstaking 20 minutes, all four chicks are under her!!!!
First two pics are her in the coop, last one is her spot on the ground with all 4 chicks underneath.
Phew! I can finally relax.. Thank you all again for your encouragement.
I probably would have given up and raised them by hand, but I'm glad to have Goldie doing most of the work for me!!
